From January 1, 2020, all new consumer DJI drone models weighing more than 250g will feature the company’s AirSense technology for detecting commercial aircraft.
AirSense relies on a built-in ADS-B receiver that picks up signals from nearby planes and helicopters and then warns drone pilots if they appear to be on a path to collision.
DJI previously included the technology in its professional drones and will now be rolling it out on a wider scale.
DJI says the technology can pick up signals from miles away, long before a drone pilot can hear or see the aircraft, giving them time to get out of the way.
The video below explains how the technology works.
